  1. In May 2018, the U.S. and its allies helped organise a “colour-revolution” in Armenia that installed the pro-Western Nikol Pashinyan as prime minister. Immediately Armenia began accelerating its pivot toward the West. Over the next few years, Azerbaijan, with the support of Turkey, began making territorial demands that included claims to Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) and portions of Armenia proper, including the Zangezur Corridor. Azerbaijan sought an extraterritorial corridor to Nakhchivan via Armenia, which would undermine Iranian influence in the South Caucasus and open up Iranian Azerbaijan to Western subversion via Azerbaijan. At the same time, increased Turkish–Azerbaijani influence, coupled with the ongoing Armenian shift toward the West, would undermine Russian control over energy in the region. In 2020 Azerbaijan, with the support of Turkey, Israel, and NATO, instigated a war with Armenian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh. Despite being a member of the Russian-fronted Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO), Armenia refused Russian assistance and also distanced itself from Iran. Prior to and during the conflict the Armenian military was poorly prepared. Many sources at the time speculated that the pro-Western PM Pashinyan allowed the Armenian military to deteriorate, hoping that a loss would serve as a further excuse for Armenia to make peace with Azerbaijan and replace CSTO with NATO membership. As a result of the war Azerbaijan achieved a decisive victory. Iran diplomatically supported Azerbaijani control over Nagorno-Karabakh, but not Azerbaijani proposals for the extraterritorial Zangezur Corridor. Recently there have been local flare-ups in which Azerbaijani forces have now gained control over portions of Armenia proper. At the same time the U.S. clearly appears to have drawn Armenia into its orbit, while Azerbaijani territorial demands have continued to escalate. Clearly the West, Israel, and Turkey are using Azerbaijan as a means to establish a base with which to attack northwestern Iran and eliminate Russian–Iranian links through the South Caucasus. As of now Turkey and Azerbaijan seem very emboldened and do not seem to think that Iran can put up any real resistance, hence continued Azerbaijani pressure on Armenia and rising Turkish ambition in Syria, Greece, Libya, and Central Asia. What if Azerbaijan, backed by the West, Turkey, and Israel, were to engage in a major armed conflict with Iran?
  2. I personally have mixed opinions on him. I believed he helped Turkey resurge and modernize greatly and saved them from being torn up by European powers, but many of his policies (particularly towards the Armenians after the genocide and his brutal subjugation of the Kurds) objectionable. What do you think?
  3. I was wondering how Prayer can help me to understand more about natural disasters like in Turkey and Syria. I think Prayer can help to lessen fear, give comfort as well as hope and an assurance that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is always with us, a force for Good in the face of natural disasters. This really helps me, especially since I am not there to give pratical help. I find that Surah Al Fatiha sums up everything we need to know especially with the part "You alone we ask for help" which means he is our Life Truth and All in All. There is hope of harmony being restored if we recognise that He governs all, there is no power outside of Him. This is the Divine Message being given to us at every moment, an eternal promise written into our daily prayers. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is Harmonious and governs all. We should have some kind of expectation of Good whether thats in the rescue effort or before it happens. That expectation allows people´s thoughts to grow. These thoughts sustain us. That expectation does not only apply to me in thinking about it but to those who are in the midst of suffering or being buried. This view or prayer applies to the whole world and this view when carried has power to change our world. The uncontrolled fury of what appears to be a force outside God needs to be kept in check. Even in small ways in our personal lives, when we don´t deal with things like sins, eating too much, not maintaining family life correctly, missing prayers etc gives rise to believing that a force of evil is more powerful than God . So in effect, if we don´t keep that in check then we can expect to see other calamaties because we have in many ways opened the door to it. Following Islam does not only affect yourself, it affects the whole world, just like a train of camels. If any one of them moves the wrong way or stops, it puts strain on the whole system.
  4. Salam Everyone Does anyone know of any organisations in Turkey through which one can pay Zakat-al-Fitrah? Thank you
  5. A part form making speeches, did Erdogan really do something against America and Israel up till now after Jerusalem has been recognized as a capital of Israel by America?. Israel still has it's embassy in Turkey's capital Ankara.
  6. https://ahvalnews.com/sdf/pentagon-allocates-550-million-sdf The Pentagon has announced that it will allocate $550 million of its 2019 budget to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a group that Turkey views as linked to a terrorist entity, the Turkish state-rune Anadolu Agency reported on Monday. The budget will include $300 million to train and equip the SDF, and a further $250 million for a contentious “border force” that is being set up to guard the regional borders. The United States sees the SDF as a multi-ethnic force that is an indispensable ally in the coalition against the extremist jihadist Islamic State (ISIS). However, the force is organically linked to the predominantly-Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), a group seen by Turkey as the Syrian wing of the banned Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). The Turkish armed forces have been involved in decades of armed conflict with the PKK, which is designated as a terrorist organisation by both Turkey and the United States. Turkey is currently fighting the YPG in the northwest Syrian area of Afrin, in an operation that has sparked high tensions between the country and its NATO ally the United States, after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan threatened to extend the operation to nearby Manbij, where U.S. troops are stationed.
  7. I heard that Shias in Turkey suffer alot of tourcher by other caste. Turkish people have the shiatephobi and all. I want to know that is it true?? They suffer lack of priority there??

  9. Turkey deploying troops to Syria’s militant-held Idlib: Report Turkish forces, it said, would not attack the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, but would engage in a "diplomatic” process and push them to evacuate Idlib and hand over their positions to the Turkish army. I hope Russia and Iran know what they're doing. I think it's obvious that the Turks are with the zionists (Saudi / Israel )
  10. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-39612562 as of now, 98.49 percent of votes have been counted, and erdogan has 51.49 percent of votes.
  11. Assalamalaikum, I have been watching news .... Im still not able to figure out who are the good guys .... Can you tell me , which countries are the good guys... P. S: Dont be biased pls.. . Be Truthful n Honest
  12. I've read that their is a Shia sect in Turkey called the Alevis' and that they account for 15-25% of the population of Turkey. I have read that they don't worship in a mosque. Although, they are considered twelver Shia, I've heard that they have unique practices. I am very curious why they don't pray in a mosque?
  13. So, I've been reading a book, and speaking with the author via his fan mail email address. And I've become so fascinated with not just a character that is minor, but the premise to the life of that character. And this lead me to decide to write a Novella about a Spy that reincarnates with new convictions, and new afflictions. The incarnations happen between the Soul's Partner as a spy. What I have written so far, is summarized as: a Syrian refugee born in England, that is deaf, and who's mother is in MI-6 as a spy to the crown with no living family because of Russian bombing, assigned to uncover the death of the Prada Llama, who in turn reincarnated in her daughter My question to the community, and concern, is if that would be crossing a line. And also, is there anyone I may speak with to help me develop further the characters?
  14. Erdogan has just recently arrested over 20 journalists and editors from a major newspaper (Cumhuriyet, left wing), and over a dozen lawmakers from the Kurdish party (HDP) in Turkish parliament, including the two party leaders selahattin demirtas, and figen yuksekdag, and turkish government has just shut down facebook, twitter, and whatsapp across the country, and shut down internet in the southeast (kurdish region), and said he would extend the emergency law for a year, while the Turkish economy crumbles and protests are being put down violently with tear gas and water cannons......he has fired 110,000 civil servants since the failed coup, shut down dozens of media outlets, fired 1/3 of the military's top command, fired and arrested thousands of judges, teachers, health care workers, professors, and union workers.......how will he be stopped? i know despairing of the mercy of Allah is a major sin, but i have begun to....
  15. Iraq censures 'irresponsible' remarks by Turkey's Erdogan Erdogan said the Turkish army would not take orders from Iraq to leave the country. "Who's that? The Iraqi prime minister. First you know your place!" Erdogan said in comments addressed to Abadi. "He is insulting me personally. You are not my interlocutor, you are not at my level," the Turkish president told a meeting in Istanbul, adding, "It's not important at all how you shout from Iraq. You should know that we will do what we want to do." http://presstv.com/Detail/2016/10/11/488634/Iraq-Haider-alAbadi-Saad-alHusseini-Turkey-Erdogan-Mosul unbelievable! I don't understand why the Iraqi army is not attacking them!!
  16. Great article on the root cause of the Syrian war: http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/09/15/assads-death-warrant/
  17. Hi all, What do you think of the Turkish invasion of Syria? Did Russia give Turkey the green light to invade? How does this change things in Syria? Thank you, MuhammadXII
  18. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/aug/24/turkey-launches-major-operation-against-isis-in-key-border-town Things are heating up. In recent weeks there were suicide bomb blasts almost everyday in Turkey.
  19. In 1974, Turkey invaded Cyprus. But, I don't understand why this happened. In 1974, Turks were spread all over the island but they accounted for only 18% of the population. Why was Turkey so set on preventing Cyprus from unifying with Greece?
  20. Erdogan is a dictator. He wants all the power in the executive branch, is censoring free speech and even passed laws saying "insulting content" can be shut down, he sent a 13 year old to prison for criticizing him, he destroyed syria and arms the takfiris, he persecutes members of the gulen movement, which my family is a part of, simply because the judiciary made a probe into possible corruption by the akp, doing their jobs, and the majority of them were gulenists, he has shut down thousands of gulen owned schools, businesses, sent journalists to prison, been in bed with saudi arabia and isis, bombs the kurds and refuses to let them fight the takfiris, he took over zaman newspaper for "promoting the pkk", said a de facto dictatorship worked in nazi germany and so it should work there, is helping the bombardment of yemen (fighting houthis), is arming boko haram, and is trying to change the constitution to turn turkey into a presidential system...and is shoving religion down a secular nation's throat. i am turkish and I HATE HATE HATE him....what do you think?
  21. Salaamunalaiqum, Turkey has been a country since last few years which is involved a lot in the events concerning Middle East. It is the Turkish border which is the cause of in stability in Syria, They openly supports the terrorists and they even entered Iraq. Shooting down Russian Jet is another example of their support for terrorist and recently they attacked Syria with their jet planes. The Worst thing is now they are preparing to send ground troops in Syria. First and foremost thing to think about it is, What Turkey would gain from all these? I want you to share your thoughts on these. Is it the animosity between them and Assad government that is causing them to do this or there is some other sinister reason. If you have read the alamaat of Zahoor you will see a lot concerning "The Turks". Are they the same Turks mentioned in Ahadith concerning the reappearance of Imam e zamana a.s
  22. Salaam Does your family celebrate Thanksgiving? Celebrate may be too strong of a word. Do you do anything out of the ordinary for Thanksgiving? Prepare a Turkey.
  23. :lol: :rolleyes: :lol: The union of Zionists and Khawarij, after Syria now the two brutal movements are going to befriend each other in Gaza! Feel sorry-- for those who were so naive to express their support for such groups (no matter what) because these groups were oppressed and were confronting Zionists and caring for Quds... so now, I hope the case is closed. ---------------------------------- Israel's secret cooperation with Hamas Link: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4650733,00.html
  24. Nobol and Zahra: The Shia towns/villages are under siege for the past 18 months...the people did not give up and defended their women and children with many Shia fighters going from different countries to help as much as they could and as long as they reached... Now, thank God, the siege is almost over, the Syrian government and some Shia fighters are getting very close after they freed the villages around and some sources even suggest that the pro-government forces already entered Al-Zahra. Lets pray that the ppl find peace and security-- as soon as possible. A documentary by PressTv from July last year on the two towns
